View Full Version : still waiting for endoscopy

Hi All

It's 4 weeks now since my gp referred me for an endoscopy and I haven't heard anything from the hospital at all! He originally told me around 6 week wait but as I haven't even had the appointment time yet this isn't looking good!

i phoned the surgery last week but they couldnt help! what am I supposed to do?

Meanwhile my stomach has got a bit better, but I am taking gaviscon 3x a day - im terrified of not taking it cos symptoms make me worry more.

Are u on nhs? Try calling 0333 2023187 that's the in house endoscopy referral number, that has been listed on my letter for an endoscopy. Surely u should of heard by now mine was a 3 week wait.

Different areas have different waiting times. If your doctor said 6 weeks then he may have meant until you get the appointment? I would wait another couple of weeks and if you haven't heard by then give the hospital a call.
